SolarWinds Releases Virtualization Manager 8.0

In continuance of the great Q3 release from SolarWinds (NPM, NTA, NCM, UDT, IPAM, DPA, & SRM), I am excited to announce the Generally Availability of Virtualization Manager (VMAN) 8.0.  Over time, Virtualization Manager has incrementally evolved from a stand-alone virtual appliance to providing advanced integration to the SolarWind’s monitoring stack. VMAN Orion allows for a single pane of glass for troubleshooting (AppStack ), root cause analysis (PerfStack), and VMAN features found only on Orion (predictive recommendations).  In VMAN 8.0 we have taken this a step further by providing native VMAN functionality in Orion while removing the virtual appliance requirement.  Our goal with the release was to improve ease of use while strengthening VMANs ability to find and resolve problems in the virtual infrastructure.  The VMAN 8.0 download can be found in the SolarWinds customer portal.

Native VMAN Polling on OrionIt is now possible to download and install VMAN much like you would for SAM & NPM without upgrading and maintaining the VMAN appliance.  If you are currently integrated, it is extremely simple to migrate your VMAN polling to Orion by going to Virtualization Settings VMware Settings (or Hyper-V Settings).  Just select the vCenter or Hyper-V host to switch polling over and choose VMAN Orion Polling from the Polling Method drop-down menu.  In VMAN 8.0 there are 3 different polling methods that you will notice.

  • Basic – This is the general polling performed by SAM & NPM and does not require a VMAN license but it will require a SAM or NPM node license. ***Note – you can still use the basic polling method if you only have VMAN polling since the VMAN license is allocated node licenses equal to the socket count in your VMAN license, (e.g. 64 socket license = 64 node licenses).
  • VMAN Appliance – This is the traditional VMAN polling which occurs from the virtual appliance and requires that the appliance is integrated with Orion to get full VMAN functionality in Orion.
  • VMAN Orion – Full VMAN polling that occurs from Orion and does not require the VMAN appliance but does require a VMAN license
